Deep forehead wrinkles, or lines, can be a common worry for adult men and women as you age, making you look tired and old. These wrinkles/lines are caused by a reduction of elastin and collagen that is produced by our bodies to keep our skin supple and smooth. As we age, the production of these proteins slows down, affecting the skin’s elasticity and its ability to spring back into place quickly.

The best way to prevent brow and frown lines is to protect your skin all year round from UV rays by using an SPF cream as well as minimise your stress, stop smoking, keep hydrated and follow a good skincare routine.

Generally, most patients will treat their forehead and brow lines at the same time as their crow’s feet to give the whole of the upper area of the face a smooth and rejuvenated appearance.

Although a surgical brow lift can treat forehead lines, it is also possible to smooth the area with non-invasive procedures that don’t incur any downtime and obtain results that give you a fresher, smoother and natural appearance.

If you’re interested in finding out about treatments for your lines, book a consultation to talk through your area(s) of concern with our highly qualified aesthetic doctor, Dr Mittal. Wrinkle smoothing treatments take between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on whether you combine your consultation with your treatment or not.

A very fine needle is used to place the product under the skin, into the muscle. It can cause discomfort in some patients so a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied to numb the area so that the client usually only feels a slight pricking/stinging sensation.

It can take up to ten days to see the final results of the smoothing of the area from the forehead smoothing injections. The effects of wrinkle-smoothing injections can last for an average of 3-4 months, although the best news is that after a few treatments, this can often increase to 6 months.

Occasionally there may be some mild swelling or bruising and possibly a headache for up to an hour afterward. However, most people will leave the clinic immediately to resume their daily routine, including driving. Dr Mittal recommends that you don’t do any strenuous exercise for 24 hours and do not touch your face for at least six hours post treatment.

It is often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure” because people quite literally get the treatment for crow’s feet, forehead and brow lines performed during their lunch break and then go straight back to work.

Dr Prerna Mittal will discuss the options with you at your consultation as treatments vary according to the patient, the number of procedures you are having, the brand and how much is required.
